Advice to Save C Drive from Running on Low Disk Space

1. After the extension, C Drive will perform better, but as time goes by, C Drive will again turn to the previous status if you keep installing new program to it. So you can change the default path in new program to other partitions so that you can avoid C Drive running on low disk space.

2. Another suggestion is to allocate appropriate amount to C Drive when resizing, extending, or partitioning. First allocation of disk space should set up some free space for future use.

3. Choose a reliable partition manager tool to do all the jobs on disk. The tool should be green, safe, fast, and have a data-protect program in its core. If not so, you data or system may be infect when it starts resizing.
